Tiffany is an owner/operator of VanderBie Farms with her husband Jesse. They have been raising meat rabbits (among goats, chickens, quail, and bees) on their farm for about 3 years now. They take pride in their work and always strive to produce the best that they can.
Today Tiffany joins us to discuss how they manage their rabbitry. Why they got into rabbits in the fist place. Selecting animal for breeding, processing meat animals and deciding when to cull or pass on breeders.
We also discuss some awesome recipes for cooking rabbit meat. We also talk about some new plans that Tiffany has for her homestead along with the importance of moving slowly when starting out and fully nailing down one form of livestock before adding another.
